Mr. Emmeluth scored a notable
victor; in tho passage on first read

When ho began his fight against the
substitute bill, whilo it was yet Id
preparation, ho stood almost alouo.
Ho did not give up when tho original
bill was tabled, but fought tho other
bill to tho table and secured a first

would bo no merit in such a stub

made with an intelligent and con
scientious regard for public inter

straight for its object, whilo tho sub

cross purposes. We believe that tin.

DEALINO WITH THE MEASLES.
Measles is no new visitant in Ho
nolulu. Thero was an epidemic her
three years ago, which went througl
foreign households as freely as thosu
of natives. It was bettor taken can
of by tho faculty than other opi
demies of fever diseases in forme,
years, when there was great fatalitj
caused by the unsophisticated Ha
waiians' rushing to tho water for re
lief from tho febrile sensations. Tim
latest epidemic of measles was cer
tainly not a circumstance in eithe
its immediate ravages or its aftov
effects to the repeated waves of in
fluenza or grip which have swop
through tho community several
times within the past three years.
Still, it is a duty incumbent on tlu
guardians of tho public health to
protect the inhabitants from epi
demics of any kind. Measles ha
terror in its uamo for the group
of tho Pacific in general, as in
many of them it has periodi
cally slain its thousands. Yet it
is such an ordinary disease of civil
ization, and ono not at all intract
able to timely treatment, that it i
not ordinarily regarded as one to b

MEASLES FEOM SAMOA.
Kobt. L. Stevenson's Sorvant Sown -Action
of Board of Health.
Thoro was a special meeting of
tho Board of Health hold at 9:
o'clock this morning. It was called
to consider tho fact that measles
had oppoared at this port since the
arrival of tho steamer Mariposa on
Wednesday. Tho Sainoan servant
of Robert Louis Stoveuson is doui.
with measles at tho cottage ocou
pied by that famous author at Sam
Thero wero present at tho meet
ing: Minister W. O. Smith, presi
dent j Dr. Andrews, John Ena and
T. F. Lansing, members; C. B. Rey
nolds, executive ollicor; Chas. Wil
cox, secretary; Drs. Cooper and
Howard, and roportors of tho Bul
letin and Star.
It was decided at first that both
tho patient and his master, Mr. Ste
venson, be quarantined in tho cot
tage. Aftor a discussion on the
whole question of quarantine for
measles, howovor. this decision wib
reconsidered, aud it was agreed that
it was ouly necessary to isolate the
patient, Bubjoetiug Mr. Storonsoii
only to the inconveuieuco of liuving
his clothing fumigated,
President Smith ppoko of tho foul
ing nlirrtd up over1 tho action tukou
with regard to tho Mariposa,
porno people Laying Ukn tho Board
sovcroly to task for not having qua
rantined tho ship nbsolutol'. Ho
recalled tho fact that measles was
t'pidctnic hero in 1890-91 without
any quarantine having boon estab
lished. Dr. Coopor thought it not neces
sary to quarantine tho whole pre
mises of Satis Souci. Tho case was
in a cottngo two or throe hundred
yards from tho main hotel.
Dr. Howard agreed with this
Dr. Andrews said that ordinaril'
when pliysiciaus isolated a patient
with measles in a house, they did
uot expect other persons in tho
house to tako it.
Prosidont Smith romarkod on tho
impression abroad that tho Board
had been negligent.
. Mr, Ena considered that the main
danger was with regard to Hawai
ians, who woro apt whou overtaken
t by a feverish disoaso to tako to tho
President Smith said that danger
did not uow exist to tho extent it
had formerly, as was. evident from
' tho faet that in the epidemic of
1890 91 only 12 deaths wore reported
in six mouths.
Ou the motion to qtiarantino Mr.
Stevenson's cottage, Mr. Ena moved
an amendment, which was accopted,
i providing that othor cases that
, might appear bo quarantined on tho
' promises whore fouud.
, President Smith put to tho Board
J tho question what should bo done
i with regard to steamers coming
with measles on board.
Mr. Lansing did not think any
thing should bo done further than
was uouo in tho case of the Mari
posa. President Smith repeated somo of
tho oxtremo views hoard regarding
tho Board's action. Ho asked
whether measles was regarded as
contagious before it broke out.
Dr. Audrows replied that it was
still a moot point. It was regarded
as contagious aftor tho development
President Smith, roferring to tho
embargo on tho steerage passengers
of tho Mariposa, wanted a decision
)f tho Board, for the euidauco of
the port physician, as to what should
be dono if measles existed among
tho saloon passengers of a steamer
This ronowed tho discussion of tho
question in all its phases. It was
die evidence of all tho physicians
present that in tho United States
quarantine was seldom if over ap
plied against measles. Dr. Audrows
3aid somo of tho faculty thought
oven placarding of infected houses
was an extreme measure.
Mr. Keyuolds, ou the suggestion
that passengers staying hero from
steamers having measles ou the voy
ago should bo given liberty, with the
restriction of being required to re
port daily for a given period, said
this requirement of reporting had
never proved better than a farce in
Honolulu. Ouly a small proportion
of tho persons who promised to re
port did so.
Dr. Andrews, in relating tho griev
auco strongly expressed by well
steerage passengers ou tho Mariposa
in being confined to tho ship, said
ho had told them that, if tuo disease
existed in the saloon, its passouger
would have been subjected to the
It seemed to bo agreed no defi
nite action being taken that when
a steamer arrived which had measles
on board ouly those affected of

Thero was an understanding, as
tho Board adjourned, that the sub
ject would bo further considered at
the regular moetiug next week, with
a view to formulating a definito poli
cy regarding visitations or epidemics
COAL HANDLING PLANT.
Bevolution in tho Unloading and
Transhipping of the Material.
Since tho return of Mr. B. F. Dil
lingham, manager of the O. It. & L.
Co., several changes have been made
in tho coal discharging apparatus,
recently constructed on the Rail
way Co.'s wharf, on the Ewa oud of
the harbor. Tho contract for con
struction of the plant was given to
Mr. Piukham, who is still engaged
in improving certain defects fouud
in the working of tho apparatus.
Thero is a movablo towor on the
seaward end of tho jetty, 100 feet'
high, in which are three machines
employed iuj lowering an automatic
scoop into the hold of a vessel and
raising tho same, at a hoist of C4
feet. Ou tho landward end engineer
F. Johnson sits, overlooking the
hold of the ship, aud by manipulat
ing a levor lowers in a trico the
monstor scoop, capable of holding
over two thousand pounds of coal,
which opens to receive its load and
shuts when filled. Tho weight of
the shovel is sufficient to fill it, whou
with auothor levor tho shovel is
raised. From this tho coal is either
discharged into hoppers to tho cars
below for transportation, or part
into cable cars of which thoro are
fourteen. These cable cars are run
by an upright ongino on tho ground
floor. An automatic scale weighs
tho coal in the cars ou tho upper
floor, when theynro runout to the
dumping ground near the railway
shod. Thoro was completed, a few
days ago, a circular track at that
end, which will facilitate tho work
ing of tho cars. After the car dumps
the coal it runs around and comes
back to tho starting point on a par
allel track. This is one of tho im
provements mndo by Mr. Dilliuir
ham. With this new device it is
calculated to bo able to tuku out 50
tons of conl from a vessel iu an
hour, tho cars making the circuit of
the track iu suveu miutites. Only
three men are mnplotcd in working
the whole outfit.
Another improvement contemplat
ed is tho construction of three hop
pers ou tho tower, whoroby two ves
sels can be discharged of their coal,
while tho third can receive coal, one
lyiiiu at tho otilur oud.
At tho dumping ground near tho
circular track, ut an attitude of ;
About 50 foot. U ouother movablo
tower, somowhat smaller than tho
other, used for taking up coal from
the giound to discharge into steam
ers or schooners for transportation.
The scoop weighs ono and a half
toiiH, mid is capable ot holding 2210
pounds of coal. Under tho towor
theto is a monster bunker which can
hold 500 tons of coal. In caso tho
coal is wanted for Ewa or outlying
districts on tho roait tho coal can be
dropped into a hopper, weighed by
automatic scale, and from there
dropped in tho railway cars. Tho
track will be laid shortly.
When a Bulletin roporler visited
tho plant this morning, everything
was upside down, and not in work
ing order. It is expected, however,
to bo in running order noxt week,
when everything can bo seon to ad
vantage. Mr. Dillingham calculates
to load a steamer or schooner at tho
rate of n ton a minute whou
thing is right sido up.

The attraction of the week
is the front of our store. By
the use of Hendry's Ready
Mixed Paints it has been made
the handsomest on Fort street,
and in painting the building
we have demonstrated, first:
that these paints cover more
surface than any other, and
that they are cheaper, and pro
duce a handsomer finish. Ten
gallons will paint any ordinary
house two coats, figure your
labor by the day and you can
tell in a second just what it
will cost you to make your
house look as good as new, or,
if it happens that it is a new one
it will make it look better.
Our object in dealing in these
paints is principally for the
profit there is in it; our interest
in the welfare of the people
and our desire to see all of the
houses in Honolulu look cheer
ful outside as well as in were
other objects for our con
sideration. In offering them
to the public we do so with a
guarantee as to their quality
and adaptability to the wants
of people who wish to have
their houses well painted at
the least possible expense.
Our stock embraces all colors
for use outside or in, for floors
or ceilings, roofs or railings.
The French rat trap which
we have been selling for a
year past has proven the
greatest enemy the rodents of
Honolulu have ever met. We
sold one to a gentlemen at
Waikiki the other day and in
eight days he was the proud
possessor of forty-three dead
rats. He was skeptical when
he took the trap home but
now he recommends it to "his
friends. If you are troubled
with rats in your house or
barn the French rat trap will
make your mind easy.
We still have some very
handsome hard wood Refri
gerators and Ice Chests good
enough to ornament any din
ing room in the City. They
are constructed of the best
selected oak and finish as well
as the hand of the Cabinet
maker's art will allow, and on
principles of economy of ice.
We've had good Refrigerators
before, but none to equal these.
Your attention is invited to
We had an order the other
day for an Aermotor from a
gentleman who has never used
anything but wooden mills.
He saw the Aermotor at work
at Ewa Plantation, saw in
what a light wind the Aer
motor would work and pump
thousands of gallons of water
per hour and compared it with
the old style wooden wheel aid
then ordered an Aermotor.
Lately the demand for large
wheels has increased so much
that we feel that they are fast
becoming a necessity to every
Colorado Oils are also in
demand by plantation engi
neers and the demand is
caused by their superior
quality. We do not hesitate
to guarantee these brands ol
lubricating oils because they
are made for us under the
supervision of one of the most
expert oil men in the United
States. So great has been
the success of this brand that
oil manufacturers in San
Francisco have tried to imitate
them but in every instance
they have made failures.
There's somethinp; about the
oil that even their best
chemists fail to discover. The
genuine Colorado Dynamo,

only by us. They are in use
on many of the plantations and
